Winning OR Losing

The dealer then reveals his two hole cards and announces their hand. If your hand beats the dealer’s, your play and ante win even money. If the dealers hand beats yours, your play, ante and blind wagers lose. If you tie, those bets push. The blind pays if your winning hand is at least a straight or better. If you beat the dealer with less than a straight, it pushes.
